Paris Questions - Only a Few


Recommended Posts

Where are you dining on a Sunday night?

 

Cocktails - I will, of course, be back to ECC, but where else should we go...please keep the price of a well-made drink below that of a 3-course lunch.

 

Coffee - beans, that is. We brew our own in the morning and will have all the necessary stuff to do just that. But, who has good beans for sale? Just for the heck of it, is anyone doing good pour-over?

 

Favorite supermarket?

 

Favorite street market?

 

And yes, I've read through all the threads here, there and everywhere.

Favorite supermarket -- La Grande Epicerie

Favorite street market -- President Wilson (16e) -- esp. for Joel Thiebault vegetables and Jacky Lorenzo fish/seafood

Coffee -- Coutume Cafe

Cocktails -- I'm a pre-dinner wine drinker in Paris, although I make an exception for ECC and have had a good drink at Les Jalles

Sunday dinner -- chez moi

I could go on and on about bread, croissants, tarts, cheese, etc., if you're interested.

Thanks, Nancy...great answers.

 

Since we're arriving on a Sunday, Chez Moi is out! But there is a nice traiteur right downstairs, so that's certainly a possibility - they have delicious chickens, if my memory serves me correctly.

Arriving on a Sunday does make buying provisions tricky. Les Jalles is open. I've also had satisfying (and cheap) dinners at Briezh Cafe -- esp. with a late reservation. I also had a good dinner at Cafe Constant -- some of the dishes are quite decent. Just curious, what's your quartier?

I've got some recent good cocktail info from my last two visits here:

My favorite right now is probably Candalaria and Conserverie

Thanks for that; those both look good.

 

Have you been to Barbershop - it looks like it might be fun?

I'm excited about the cocktail recommendations as well. I'm having dinner at Pirouette next Saturday, with a 9:30pm reservation, so I think I'll go to Conserverie first for cocktails. Dinner on Thursday is at Saturne, at9:00pm, so I'm thinking about Frenchie wine bar first, which I haven't seen since its renovation. Friday is dinner in the 7th at Table d'Aki -- I'm not sure about the pre-dinner plan yet.
